and what it all means for you with our headliners, house democratic leader, nancy pelosi, house homeland security chair, peter king, and carl levin of the senate armed services committee, and insights and analysis with our powerhouse roundtable with george will, donna brazile, jonathan karl, newt gingrich and congressman xavier becerra. >>> plus -- ♪ sugar sugar >> america's favorite tasty treat turns into another political football. is it twilight for the twinkie? >>> good morning. george stephanopoulos has the weekend off. we begin with breaking news from the middle east where despite talks of a possible cease-fire, the air war between hamas and israel is continuing. so let's get right to it. we have alex marquardt in gaza city and christiane amanpour in jerusalem, and, alex, let me begin with you. give us a sense of what's been going there on in gaza. >> reporter: good morning, martha. it's been very consistent pummeling of gaza by the israeli air force and a consistent launching of rockets by these palestinian militant groups. we are hearing the bombings going off rather incessantl
. it was a personal mistake. >> i sat down with house minority leader nancy pelosi. we'll hear more from that interview, but let's listen to what she said about this. >> so you don't think he should have resigned? >> well, that was his decision. that was his decision. my only -- >> but if you just think it's a personal matter, why should he resign? >> what happens in his life is not my business. what happens on the internet is i think stupid, but those are decisions that he made. i think he did something that wasn't good, and he made the honorable decision to resign. >> congressman king, should he have resigned? >> i think all the fact is, yes. i have great regard for general petraeus. i consider myself a friend of general petraeus, and he's handled himself with great dignity and class over the years. he's an outstanding leader. obviously mistakes were made here. i think we have to reach a stage, though, when you think of so many leaders in the past who have had sexual indiscretions and they stayed in office in the modern world in which we live, i guess it's almost like zero tolerance fo
. obviously that's the pending business here in washington. i want to play something nancy pelosi had to say. again, we're in the stakes setting, ground rule laying part of this debate. let's play what pelosi said and we'll come back and talk about it. >> a possible xrcompromise that would lead rates the same but cap for high income earners. is that accept able? >> no. >> not at all? >> no way? >> the president made it very clear in his campaign there are not enough resources. what you just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> so, mark, what we saw on friday congressional leaders meet with president obama. everyone comes out and says, look, we're going to have a deal. what you see here from nancy pelosi, look, this isn't going to be a deal made by simply closing loopholes. what does that mean? though she's not saying it in that clip is we're going to have to raise taxes on the wealthy. are republicans in any position to really fight this? they're going to put up some kind of fight but to carry this on december 25, december 26, as we get closer? >> chris, democr
into the holiday week. congresswoman nancy pelosi made some headlines about this comment about tax hikes for the wealthiest americans. >> would you accept a deal that does not include tax increase s for wealthy we have seen some capping income rates for high income earners -- is that acceptable at all? >> no. >> not at all? >> no, the president made it clear that there is not enough resources and what you have just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> okay. hogan, some of the gop are open to higher taxes for the top earners and senator mitch mcconnell came out after the talks last week, and took the microphone with pelosi and with reid and boehner at the side saying that revenue is on the table, but when the talks ramp back up after thanksgiving, is this an issue to be real negotiation or dig-in time? >> i hope it is time for a negotiation. look, if there is one thing that we learned from the president's campaign, he promised to raise taxes on the wealthy. and here is a news flash to the republicans out there, elections have consequences, and that is what h
. >> democratic congressmember nancy pelosi has announced plans to stay on as house minority leader through the 2014 midterm elections. she disclosed the news as she stood with a group of incoming female members of congress. look russert asked if it prohibited the democratic party from grooming a new generation of leaders. >> you say your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and hurts the party in the long term -- what is your response? >> discrimination. >> next! next! >> wow. >> you have always asked that question, except to match mcconnell. >> the now former republican candidate mitt romney is under scrutiny for a leaked recording discussing president of them supporters. and a conference call with donors, romney blamed his loss on obama's so-called diaz to various groups including african-americans and hispanics. >> the president's campaign focused on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then worked very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> romney went on to include young people an
a question at nancy pelosi's presser and was soundly booed over his age-related queer. >> i some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and will be hurt -- hurts the party in the long term. what's your response? >> discrimination. >> whoa! >> next! next. >> leader pelosi -- >> i guess -- >> whoa! >> you always ask that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> oh, mitch mcconnell, the senate minority leader is 70 years old. nancy pelosi is 72. in the world of politics, age is kind of a skewed concept. average age of members of the house is 56. and of senators it's 62. i mean, paul ryan is thought of as a young gun. he's 42. that's eight years shy of being a card-carrying member of the aarp. ronald reagan was 69 when he first ran for president. many worried he was too old for the job until his famous quip during a debate. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> yes, reagan used age to his advantage. but seriously, h
question. >> all right. a lot of questions about nancy pelosi and whether she will continue on as your leader. will she or won't she? >> you know, i think that's probably the hottest question in the capitol right now. but personally if you ask me, i would be shocked if she left. you know, would really surprise me if she stepped aside. nancy pelosi is someone who absolutely loves to be part of the architecture of big major decisions, the big issues. we wouldn't have health care reform without barack obama and nancy pelosi. and with the fiscal cliff issues and the big economic decisions we're going to be making it would be hard for me to imagine she walks away. plus, you know, we had a successful election and we've got a job to finish. so just knowing her, that's my gut feeling. >> did you guys have a successful election? because -- >> you mean in the house? >> yeah, obviously the president won big, the senate won big, but the republicans are still in charge of the house. >> yeah, they are. but, look, i think if you look at -- if this election were not right after redistricting, and if y
in session. nancy pelosi saying she would stay in her job as democratic leader as long as you stated in yours as the head of the democratic congressional campaign committee. now yesterday she was asked about the democratic leadership. but and i want to play some of what the exchange was and get your reaction to that. take a listen. >> some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and hurts the party in the long term. >> i think that what you will see, and let's for a moment honor it as a legislate question. although it's quite offensive, but you don't realize it, i guess. the fact is that everything that i have done in my almost decade now of leadership is to let younger and newer people to the congress. >> sir, in your estimation, did he have a point in pointing out all the players are staying the same, and is there a potential for new leadership blood to move things along in what many people would consider the gridlock that exists in washington, d.c. >> well, i love luke, but i think his question wasn't legislate. le
the numbers that nancy pelosi needs to become speaker again. and that's going to happen if the republicans keep thinking like mitt romney. >> you know, that's the question, ashley, and that is as you see the demographic changes, younger voters tend to be more liberal. a lot of hispanic people moving into the country having a lot of kids and voting and being citizens, becoming a part of a political process more than ever and you have african-american voters, an african-american president but there are other factors that have led hem to the democratic party potentially. you see a lot of potential for the democratic party to grow. then the other party says you're all bought, it seems to me that would just sort of fortify the democratic tendencies of the people we've been talking about here. >> well, it's unclear what wing of the republican party mitt romney, you know, is going to be representing going forward, and i think that's one of the reasons -- >> the mayor says he's out of business. i'm not sure he has a future. >> that's why it's easy for the republicans to come out and criticize him
nancy pelosi smacked down without the slightest hesitation. >> we've seen talk about a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for high income earners. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. >> not at all. no way. >> no, the president made it very clear in his campaign there is not enough -- there are not enough -- what you just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> yes, it does seem that the gop's new ideas look a lot like their old ideas, which were just litigated in the election and lost. of course, mitt romney's chalked that up to gifts from the praez's president's camp. how is that going over? >> i just think it's nuts. i mean, first of all, it's insulti insulting. this would be like walmart having a bad week and going the customers have really been unruly. >> we'll grant mr. gingrich his share of schadenfreude but surely mr. romney is getting more support in other republican quarters for taking on the takers. >> we're in a big hole. we're not getting out of it by comments like that. when you're in a hole, st
republicans will be the ones taking the blame. >> nancy pelosi insists that raising tax rate for the rich is going to happen. let me show you this. >> we've seen talk about a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for high-income earners. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. >> not at all. no way. >> well, no. i mean, the president made it very clear in his campaign that there is not enough -- there are not enough -- what you just describe is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> heather, do you think the republicans will back down on this kind of insistence by the president backed up by pelosi and the democrats? >> i think there's real reason for hope. i think that the president soundly won the election, that the democratic senate got more progressive with people like elizabeth warren with sharon brown beating back hundreds of millions of dollars in special-interest corporate money from likes like the chamber. so i think there is hope for there to have been a strong signal started frankly last year with occupy, where we had this fra
nancy pelosi is on stage with all of these great women. like i mentioned earlier ageism is the one ism that liberals and conservatives are guilty of. luke, this is what you did. let's play it. >> i guess -- oh, you've always asked that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> he missed the question. joan what happened there was luke russert got to ask a question during speaker -- former speaker pelosi's press conference yesterday with all of the democratic-elected officials on stage. and he asked about her age and about the fact that she's hanging on to the leadership position and isn't that depriving someone younger of getting it. and former speaker pelosi astutely pointed out that he would never ask that question of mitch mcconnell and then she said this. >> let's, for a moment, honor it as a legitimate question. although it is quite offensive but you don't realize that, i guess. the fact is -- the fact is that everything that i have done in my almost -- i guess decade now of leadership is to elect younge
for the white house in years. he joins people like bill clinton, nancy pelosi, ed rendell, new york senator jill brand and republicans talking about it. google hillary clinton 2016 you get more than five million hits. for her part, mrs. clinton insists the answer's no. she's finishing her term as secretary of state. leave as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the
